Ad- and trackerblocker for Opera for Android

  • Opera mobile has an urlfilter, which can be configured using opera:config

    opera:config does not exists in opera for android, and add-ons like
    https://addons.opera.com/de/extensions/details/opera-adblock/?display=de
    cannot be used as well. Is there any way to block trackers and/or ads in opera for android?

  • Hi @fdgsdfgsdfgsdg, in regard to the trackers, you can consider to use for that purpose the Orbot app \m/ :coffee:
    "Orbot is a free proxy app that empowers other apps to use the internet more securely. Orbot uses Tor to encrypt your Internet traffic and then hides it by bouncing through a series of computers around the world. Tor is free software and an open network that helps you defend against a form of network surveillance that threatens personal freedom and privacy, confidential business activities and relationships, and state security known as traffic analysis."

  • This is no effective protection against trackers. By simply using tor, you only hide the relationship between IP addresses and Cookie/tracker-IDs. So the only thing that is improved in regard of tracking is your current IP address.
    Butthanks for the idea, I did not know Orbot yet (but Tor)
